Last chance to get your place at the Social Hiking community weekend

‘Right in the very heart of Devon, Dartmoor is a landscape of stunning views, awe inspiring granite tors, deep wooded valleys with fast flowing rivers, and rugged, wide open spaces.’

Visit Dartmoor’s description of the moor is perfect. Once you have visited, Dartmoor finds its place in a corner of your heart and never lets you go. From one day to the next she can change from being rugged, wild and a challenge to overcome, to suddenly being gentle and welcoming. Whatever the day brings, Dartmoor is always beautiful and unique.

Over the years we have encouraged many people to discover Dartmoor, and we think it is the perfect place for the first Social Hiking Community Weekend.  We are excited to have the sole use of a cozy self-catering bunkhouse with a log fire right on the moor on Saturday 22nd October.

It is brilliant to see many of the Social Hikers who are regulars to Dartmoor have signed up, and it appears they are busy discussing planned walks and possible cycle rides.  We are hoping to meet up with some new faces at the weekend too.

If you are new to Social Hiking this is the perfect chance to talk to our technical expert Phil, who will be on hand to help out with any niggles or technical queries you may have, as well as to discuss features you would like to see on the site. If you are new to Dartmoor, this is the perfect chance to talk and walk with some enthusiastic regulars and discover the very best of the moor with them.

We are looking forward to the weekend, it is only a couple of weeks away now. The bunkhouse is accessible by car (or by bike if you are so inclined), or if you wish to come by train and want to liaise with others for lift sharing get in touch with Sarah (@drpollypeacock or
